, not focused on our politics here in washington. >> the framework that i've outlined in our meeting today is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness we put revenue on the table as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. >> i can say on the part of my members that we fully understand that you can't save the country until you have entitlement programs that fit the demographics of the changing america in the coming years. >> the president also had a special message for the speaker. >> tomorrow is speaker boehner's birthday so for those of you who want to wish him a happy birthday, we will -- we're not going to embarrass him with a cake because we didn't know how many candles were needed. >> yeah, right. >> but we want to wish him a happy birthday. >> that's 63 candles and one for good luck. the president did give him a bottle of 1997 brunelo retailing for $125. "parks and recreations" gets her moment with the vice president. >> this isn't happening. this -- this isn't real. >> no. it's happening. i'm delighted to have you
mitchell live in washington. congress is back. grover norquist's tax pledge could be history. and all eyes are now focusing on house republicans as talks to avoid going over that so-called fiscal cliff are picking up steam. joining me now, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc and ruth marcus, columnist and editorial writer for the "washington post." to you, mark, what is your read about what we've been hearing the last couple of days about grover norquist, the pledge and how much running room the speaker does have to b negotiating a deal. >> i did a spit take with my fruity pebbles watching "morning joe" because eric cantor's tone was unlike anything i've ever heard. his office is saying oh, no, he's against raising marginal rates, but it's clear that in the scheme of things, the biggest piece is does john boehner have enough running room to strike a deal involving some new revenue. i still am of the belief that the vote in the house, which will be a cliff hanger no matter what happens amongst the leaders in the white house, it will be a tough vote. i think it will
during opening day at washington's first costco. >> walking through this store just get foot. calling for guidance. >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington right now at the white house, the political power lunch of 2012. president obama and mitt romney meeting for the frts time privately since the campaign after having been together serve times overall, including three debates. ruth marcus, and kristin welker. kristin what are they saying about the private lunch? not much, i guess? >> reporter: not a lot, andrea. they're tamping down expectations. jay carney saying there's no formal agenda to this lunch. of course president obama, during his victory speech in chicago, said he wanted to sit down, talk to mitt romney about his views how to move the country forward. you have to assume that would include a robust discussion of the fiscal cliff, given that is what lawmakers are talking about now. mitt romney just arrived here. we're not expecting anything huge to come out of this meeting. no appointment. for example, to the cabinet. but the president certainly, i think, hoping

to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> some of petraeus' former military aides tell nbc news, they were uncomfortable with biographer paula broadwell's access to the general. >> i thought this was a little bit strange, that he would take someone who's never written a book and allow them such unfettered access and allow them to write what is really the first biography. >>> cliff talks. president obama reaches out to business and labor to rally support for his plan to raise taxes on the rich. are republicans and democrats any closer to making a deal? >> we've had votes in the senate where we've actually gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. and i think that the vast majority of americans agree with that. the question is, how do you do that? >> we need the republicans to do in 2012 what we did in 2010. we hear the mandate, continue to cut spending. but they have to hear the mandate, real revenues, not this kind of stuff like dynamic scoring. >> let me follow up on that. >>>
a day after his election. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. let the negotiations begin. house and senate leaders have now staked out their opening positions. now the president will put down his markers. we're only moments from his scheduled first post-election speech at the white house addressing the most urgent crisis of the lame-duck session, the fiscal cliff. without a deal, the congressional budget office now projects that if the tax cuts expire and the budget cuts kick in, unemployment would jump to 9.1% by the end of next year and the nation's economy could slide into another recession. joining me for our daily fix, special panel, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com, mark halperin, senior political analyst for "time" and msnbc. >> greg, u.s. economics editor for the economist and "new york times" andrew ross sorkin, co-host of "squawk box" on cnbc. welcome all. first chris cizilla and mark halperin, the political side of this, chris, your reporting so far, we've seen speaker boehner today, what chuck schumer had to say, the pr

[ inaudible ]. i am the worst jurmist in the world. for god's sake the title of her book was "all in." she might as well -- >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. we begin with the broadening and complicated scope of the petraeus investigation that has now ensnared his successor, commander of all forces in a
score. if they're going to have a chance to win. the counties outside washington, around washington, are the most important in terms of the swings. >> and also for president obama -- i was going to say, chris cizilla. >> yeah. >> the richmond area, richmond city is very important for president obama to run up big returns. >> president obama, northern virginia, richmond city, hampton roads, large african-american population. i would say mark is exactly right in terms of virginia is a battleground all across the state. two counties that i keep an eye on, maybe just because they're close to where i live, but prince william and louden, these are suburban washington, d.c. counties. president obama won both of them in 2008. in 2009, bob mcdonnell the governor of virginia and a republican won both of them. that suburban vote as it relates to northern virginia is critically important to both -- it's more important to mitt romney. he has to i think carry those two counties because we already know in the kind of inner suburbs, northern virginia arlington and parts of fairfax county barack oba
fors the.! "washington post," well astime's" senio correspondent michael crowley. we thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, wh are the lessons youed lookin yo come? >> well, i mean let's talk first about lessons lear andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the be what you see is republicans have large-scale structural issues with coalition. they mitt romney got 27f hispa barack obama got 71%f hispanic vote nationally. women made up 53% of the electorate. there was an 11-point gender gap for bara o republican - won the white vot by 20 points, but it was, he ump tooentrow, a overall electorate. it's a dangerous game they arei party knew that before this election. if they didn't before this election, they certainly know now. i would point you to a statement marco rubio, senator from a, re morning basically saying we need we haveorsee, though, how the of the republican party reacts because that is not been a message thatee to in terms of loosening up ton their focus on immigr
'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no cease-fire and at least 30,000 israeli re servists perhaps more are amassed at the gaza border. surrounding roads have been closed and the soldiers cell phones have been confiscated to preserve battlefield secrecy. since the pace of hostilities escalated last wednesday more than 500 hamas rockets have fallen in israel. israeli air strikes have killed at least 90 gazans. nbc's richard engel, stephanie gosk and ayman mohyeldin are in the region reporting the latest from gaza to tel aviv. first richard engel in gaza, what is the latest from your vantage point and on the cease-fire negotiations? >> we are hearing that there are serious cease-fire negotiations going on right now. when you're on the ground here in gaza it doesn't exactly feel that way. there have been many air strikes today, a media building was killed. israel is sort of -- [ inaudible ] on hamas leader or one palestinian militant at a time. sources who are involved in the israeli/palestinian negotiations working toward a cease-fire, these talks taking place in cairo have told nbc news
.com and karen, national political correspondent fors the "washington post," as well as "time's" senior correspondent michael crowley. welcome all. thanks so much. well, our daily fix, what are you looking at, chris cizilla, what are the lessons you've learned and looking at in the four years to come? >> well, yeah. i mean let's talk first about lessons learned, andrea. i would say republicans, to blame mitt romney for this loss in some ways misses the point. if you look at the exit polling, be what you see is republicans have large-scale structural issues with their coalition. they -- mitt romney got 27% of the hispanic vote nationally, barack obama got 71% of the hispanic vote nationally. women made up 53% of the electorate. there was an 11-point gender gap for barack obama. republican -- mitt romney won the white vote by 20 points, but it was, again, for the ump tooents election in a row, a declining share of the overall electorate. it's a dangerous game they are playing demographically. i think many leaders in the party knew that before this election. if they didn't before this elec
name is out there, it makes sense about why he called initially a congressman from washington because frederick hump fridays 16-year veteran of the cia, worked in washington state there in 1999, had a big patrol play in investigating the millennium bomb plot against the l.a. airport and he knew the congressman from washington, that he called because that congressman used to be the sheriff there it would make sense he would call that congressman here raentsecently he thought the investigation was stalled. details are falling into place. >> tell me about the house intelligence hearing today. trying to get more information about the benghazi events and general patreaus is meeting with lawmakers in the house and senate tomorrow. >> we are unable to know what is being said because of the nature of the classified briefing, closed door, the rich detail pete was able to tell us about is not flowing yet. we hope as the day ends there would be some members characterize the nature of what they heard without revealing secrets. it's an important step. members wanted to make a big distinction betwe
'm andrea mitchell live in washington. thanks for joining us. you can bet this is not the way mitt romney had hoped to get to the white house. instead of measuring the drapes in the oval office he'll be the president's guest for lunch. their first meeting since that last debate. joining me now for our daily fix, chris cizilla, msnbc contributor and managing editor of post politics.com and from "usa today" susan page. what do you think is on the menu? >> some people on twitter when i tweeted out suggest crow might be served. look, this is, i think, there's no press coverage. this is not closed press. there is no press coverage. a private meeting between the two of them. i think it's designed to say the election is over, mitt romney did win about 47.5% of the vote of the american public, a recognition of that fact and recognition by the president if there is a grand bargain to be done he's going to need the help of republicans. i don't know how much mitt romney will play a role in that. i think mitt romney this is the guy i beat, he represents a significant constituency that voted against m
in washington. president obama took the show on road today. who are not impressed by the administration's opening budget officer. -- offer. joining me is kristen welker, and luke russert. first to you, the calculus in going to the suburbs of philadelphia, kristen, clearly he feels that the political play right now is better than the inside game that didn't work for him during the super committee negotiations, but can that backfire? >> right now the president feels as though he has a fair amount of leverage having won re-election so he's trying to build momentum on the road. remember, this is a tactic that worked for him during the payroll tax cut fight when he went out, took his case to the american people, so he is doing it once again today in hatfield, pennsylvania, a suburb of philadelphia, speaking at a toymaker and making the case that toymaker would be harmed. consumer confidence begdwindled they would lose business if dungs fails to get a deal done and they would wind up spending less on christmas shopping, for example. this is a tactic that has been persuasive in the past. of co
day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. joining me on the phone, new york congressman peter king, whose long island district includes long beach, jones beach, especially hard hit. thank you for taking time. i know you've been touring the district. what are the most critical needs and where? >> southern part of the district, south massapequa, lindenhurst, devastated. there are shells of homes. in tragedies are alike. people's furn titure in street, life long momentums destroyed. fortunately not a great loss of life. three or maybe four have been killed. there was a very good all levels of government, state, county, towns and villages, so there's a lot of cooperation. the main thing right now, i would say, is to get people's power back on. there's 1.1 million customers in long island power authority and over 900,000 lost power. it's unprecedented. and that includes the hospital, police stations, fire departments, schools. you know right down the line. but it's, again, almost 90% of the residents in nassau county have lost their power. >> you've been everywhere. yesterday helping co
. i point to the "washington post"/abc news, doing tracking polls every day about a week and a half now, the last two rolling tracks we've asked about president obama's job performance on sandy, 78% two days ago said excellent or good, 79% said excellent or good. yesterday. when you're dealing with the margins here, it can't hurt. i think the fact that the president got to be the president, kind of be bipartisan, to go up, look at things, that role, remember the people haven't decided yet, aren't partisans on either side. they tend to be independent on affiliated -- unaffiliated voters. who don't like that partisanship. for him to be with chris christie looking like they were working together for the good of the people in new jersey and new york, that accrues to his broad benefit. do i know how many people say i saw president obama during hurricane sandy and i'm voting for him, no, but i think this last week has helped him burnish that image of a guy who is presidential willing to work across the aisle. mitt romney can't do nothing about it. through no fault of mitt romney. barack o
of trying to get things accomplished in washington. >> bill mcinturf and peter hart. the best in the business, the best poll and we're so happy and proud to have you and have you as colleagues, thank you very much. >>> mitt romney is touching all bases today, from iowa to ohio, where the campaign is going head to head with the obama team's ground troops, county by county. shawn spicer, shawn, good to see you. i want to ask you about the travel plans. the fact that the romney/ryan team going to pennsylvania has raised a lot of eyebrows, the democrats say it's desperation, because they know they can't win ohio, have to find some other route to 270. republicans in pennsylvania and elsewhere say it's a real campaign. and that there's a real possibility there. tell us what you're seeing on the ground. >> i think we're going to carry ohio. i think we got real shot at pennsylvania. so if you use their metric, the governor and paul ryan have been in ohio extensively over the last couple of days, they'll continue to be there in the last 48 hours that proves that we believe we think we'
not springsteen. >> i'm andrea mitchell in washington. hillary clinton will land in israel within the next few hours and head directly to jerusalem to meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. the exchange of fire continued today from both sides. joining me now nbc's martin fletcher in tel aviv and ayman mohyeldin in gaza. martin, to you, what are israelis saying about the status of a cease-fire or truce or temporary pause in hostilities to negotiate something more long term? >> yeah. all the talk is of a truce a cease-fire, which is pretty much been announced it will be announced in the arab capitals and gaza. the israelis saying that it is not a done deal. they're saying it's not wrapped up. they say there's still agreements to be worked on and they are waiting to see what they will still be able to achieve in terms of their single most important goal which is that this cease-fire, if it takes place, will not be some sort of quick fix, but a long-term solution to the problem for the israel of firing rockets from gaza against the israeli targets. they want it to end long term and say that'
for a viable negotiation. >> final thoughts. >> but there has to be pressure from washington and not simply accepting the terms laid down by congress and telling the palestinians you can't do this because of congress. we have our own politics here in america. they have their politics there. and apec may rule the street in congress -- >> because of pro israel lobby. >> and deny palestinian aid if, in fact, they declare independence and statehood but the fact is, they have to be concerned with what is important to them and that is their credibility and their legitimacy as a governing authority. if we have a situation where hamas has won a victory and that's how it will be perceived and abu mason and the palestinian authority have been humiliated an that's how it will be perceived that is not a recipe for success. the congress be dammed in this context. palestinians have to do what they think is best for them and the u.s. should back them up and support them and the rest will take care of itself. aid will be forthcoming for palestinians i believe from the arab side, but we cannot allow this mo
of their pledge to this anti-tax zell lot. >> the washington democrats, every dollar that's ever been secured for anything is sacred. every dollar secured for anything is sacred. and they'll defend it to the death regardless of what it means for jobs, or the economy. >>> coming up here, the it's top economic adviser alan krueger. clashes in cairo today, more protests in tahrir square against egypt's president morsi. we'll have a live report. move over george clooney the on yan's kim junge un the sexiest man alive and beijing doesn't get the joke. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no joke today on capitol hill. ambassador susan rice's attempt to clear the air with republicans over benghazi did not work as the white house had hoped. senators mccain, ayotte and graham say they have more questions than they had before rice's comments about benghazi. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get it. >> if you don't know what happened just say you don't know what happened. people can push you to give explanations and you can say i do
, the same to his republican representatives in washington. he said that he'll back each of us regardless of party as long as we work together to make life better for all of us. and he made it clear that if we don't make enough progress he'll be back in touch. so, my hope, he wrote, is that we can make progress in light of personal and party principles, special interest groups and years of business as usual. we've got to work together and put our differences aside. i couldn't say it better myself. that's precisely what i intend to do and with that, let me open it up for your questions. and i'm going to start off with ben filler of ap. >> thank you, mr. president. can you assure the american people that there have been no breaches of national security or classified information in the scandal involving generals petraeus and allen and do you think that you, as commander in chief, and the american people, should have been told that the cia chief was under investigation before the election? >> well, i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was disclosed
